This is the largest beer garden I've visited in Prague. From the elevation of Letenske Sady park, you can appreciate a view of the Vlatava river + the city centre with a beer in one hand and sausage in the other. Europe.
Letenske Sady is a huge park. There are in fact two beer gardens; one large area serving Gambrinus that overlooks the city centre, and a smaller one in a fenced area that serves Krusovice. Let us discuss the first.
Prepare for a photographic journey:
If you look closely at the photos, you'll find that I'm a shitty photographer who seldom holds the camera long enough to ensure the photo doesn't become blurry and/or retarded. Here are some better photos jacked from the www:
0.5L Gambrinus = 33 kr
Kobasa sausage = 50 kr
There are plenty of benches providing plenty of seating. People are generally youngish. Dogs run to and fro. It's a great spot to introduce to a visitor to Prague. While in the park, you could also go to Stalin Square (which is also a world-famous skate spot) to see the Prague Metronome. Recently, however, the Metronome hasn't been running… for some reason. But it still offers a beautiful vantage point of most of Prague. The park has plenty of open space for picnic-ing, playing frisbee, tossing balls, jogging etc.
The Question: Best Beer Garden in Prague?
Zizkov's Riegrovy Sady vs. Letna's Letenske Sady
In my review of Riegrovy Sady, I wrote that my friends (expats) believe Riegrovy Sady is the best beer garden in Prague. They do. But they are vinohrady/zizkov people. Aesthetically, Letenske is superior. Economically, Riegrovy Sady is a few crowns cheaper. But Letna is larger and more spacious.. hmm.
If it had to try to explain the differences, I'd say that Riegrovy Sady is a little more nose-piercing and dreadlocks, while Letna tends to be a little more collared-shirt and woolsocks. Such stereotyping hardly does any good though. If you have the time, visit them both and see which suits your vibe.
